Fiji Ministry of Youth and Sports Partnership

On the 25th of April 2013, GVI Fiji and the Fiji Ministry of Youth and Sports signed a memorandum of understanding to confirm an official partnership between this government ministry and GVI projects in Fiji. The idea will be to promote further youth related projects, income generation programs, and new opportunities through the shared resources of the MOYS and GVI. After various presentations and a visit to the Yasawas, the Ministry of Youth and Sports were impressed by our projects and have endorsed our volunteer powered programs here in Fiji. After speeches from Mr Sania, Permanent Secretary of The Ministry of Youth and GVI Fiji Country Director, Dan, the MOU was publicly signed. With our new Dawasamu Base and projects launching this Saturday, this government recognition and support has come a great time as we work to expand our impact and support of new opportunities for the youth of Fiji.
